Keep well, you'll be keeping an eye on us and we will have you in our hearts, forever.
I remember the first time I met you, then Mrs. F. It was in the summer at your home for the wedding shower to celebrate my soon to
be sister-in-law. I had brought a laundry basket of gagdets and wrote a little poem about the life Denise was soon to begin with my brother, Pete. There were light bulbs, to light the way, elastics to know when to you need to stretch and lots of laughs inbetween!
You loved life itself. With all the celebrations and rough spots, you were the 'lady'. Those qualities you taught to your family quite well. You enjoyed decorating and made a lovely home. You wore so many hats; as daughter and sister, friend, wife and lover, mother and grandma and excelled at them all. I do know that your grandchildren adored and enjoyed their time with you. You even friended me on FB.
Life is good to all of us; as Ralph Waldo Emerson put it "It is not length of life, but depth of life". Jo Jo - you did just that, you lit the way wherever you went, you kept us stretching each day and enjoyed lots of laughs. Keep well Friend.
